I can’t quite fathom how we are in the middle of February already. It’s been a busy month for us so far- we have had a trip to Norfolk, LL’s birthday and also just general day to day life. Both Mr E and I have been really busy with work- while this is of course much welcomed, it also gets on top of me sometimes and as a result other things, like taking photos or keeping on top of the washing has taken a little bit of a back seat.
However because Daddy was working on LL’s birthday last Wednesday, we promised them we would go on an extra special treat at the weekend. When you are two and the weather is pretty terrible, there isn’t much you can particularly do. But then we realised that the Peppa Pig film was out and for a Peppa obsessed LL this couldn’t have been more perfect. So we planned a special day for her- we went out early on Saturday to the film, had Pic n Mix, (this nearly blew their minds as they had never chosen things from there before) and then went out to Pizza Hut afterwards. (Again the ice cream factory was a big hit funnily enough!)
LL was so sweet in the film, it was her first proper cinema experience, bar coming with us when she was about three months old and spending the time attached to my boob so she wouldn’t cry! It was also probably only Mads third time as well, as we went through a stage where she was terrified of the cinema. However both of them loved it, LL was so cute sat in her little chair clutching on to her bag of sweets and she did all the dancing and actually shook with excitement when Peppa came on the screen. It couldn’t have been a more perfect birthday treat out for my littlest lady.
After lunch I realised I had taken no photos so we quickly went behind the cinema to take a few photos of them both for the ‘Siblings’ project this month. They were undoubtedly wired on sugar from too much ice cream and sweets, and were both being ridiculously silly. And it turns out that I actually love these photos a lot- they aren’t particularly exciting as the light was so grey and the location was a bit grim, but they capture my girls perfectly. Mr E and I tried to wrestle that Peppa Pig drawing board off LL so she wasn’t holding them in the photos but everytime we did she proceeded to do her ‘meltdown screech’ so we decided it wasn’t worth it! Plus I guess it sums her up in February perfectly, she carries it around everywhere!
All was going swimmingly and we were having a lovely time until Mads decided to swing LL a little too hard by her arm, causing LL to do a rather comical (bad Mummy) face plant flat on her face. She was covered in mud from head to toe, it was even all over her face. Luckily after a few minutes tears we realised she wasn’t hurt, but that put an end to that. And that completely also sums up my girls- they play so nicely for a certain amount of time, before it inevitably turns to fighting or tears over something.
I guess that’s siblings for you…
This month I am sending you over to Kerri-Ann who takes the most stunning almost magical photos of her girls. Be sure to go and have a look there and link up too as I am still having trouble with my linky tools- it’s most strange! We are looking forward to the other Siblings too!
